This Christmas, we continue to support Solvatten
As this year's Christmas gift, we will continue to support Solvatten, and their project in supplying clean and hot water to people in Burkina Faso and Uganda. We hope that our support can give more people improved health, hygiene and living condition
Investment AB Latour and its wholly-owned operations have been in collaboration with Solvatten since 2018. During 2021 we have together donated 1344 Solvatten to Uganda.
Solvatten® is a Swedish innovation that purifies water by using nothing but solar energy. It opens like a book, and after a few hours in the sun the water is free from waterborne bacterias that would otherwise cause stomach diseases such as dysentery and cholera. Compared to other water purification methods, Solvatten simultaneously heats the water. By combining safe and hot water, beneficiaries can improve both health and hygiene trough a sustainable source of energy.
The ongoing pandemic has even more revealed the importance of having safe and warm water available for people to wash their hands and surfaces to prevent cases of illness.
